  • Is this a good deal


    I am looking at this miter saw this evening and was wondering if anyone could tell me if it is a good deal. The owner has been unable to find a model number on it...

    If it were me, I'd pass on it if you're looking for a miter saw that will give you accurate cuts. In my opinion the older CMS's by RIDGID, Craftsman and Ryobi are all junk. They are all made by the same company and share the same problems. The biggest one being that when making a bevel cut the table has a tendency to flex due to a defect in design. On the other hand, I'd grab up that older version of the Miter Saw Utility Vehicle, what he called the stand, in a heartbeat.

    If on the other hand you're just looking for a miter saw to do construction type work where close enough is good enough than that's a pretty good deal for both pieces.
    I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

        I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.
